Trans guidance for schools

The government has recently published draft non-statutory guidance for schools and colleges around gender identity.

This is guidance, not law and it is non statutory – there is no legal duty for schools to follow it.

As a charity that works directly with trans and gender-questioning young people and their parents/carers, we urge schools to continue to follow best practice guidance and research about what keeps young people safe, as many schools have been doing for years.

Here’s some support and additional actions you can take to help:

  • If you are Kirklees / Calderdale based Brunswick yOUTh can offer one-to-one, youth groups or counselling support for LGBTQ+ young people
